InterVarsity - Stepping into a new role

Stepping into a new role.

In October I began a new role with InterVarsity as the Eastern Ontario Director.  Up until now I have been working only with university students, but in fact InterVarsity’s ministry also includes overnight summer camps for children, highschool ministry, and workplace ministry for recent graduates.  In this new role, I will provide strategic vision and direction for camp, highschool, campus, and workplace ministries in Eastern Ontario.

OCCRC 2021 Christmas Program

The Holiday season is approaching fast and this goes without saying that it is going to be, once again, a difficult time for a lot of families in our community due to the pandemic that has been ongoing for over a year and a half. Like many businesses in our community, we have been impacted by this crisis on various levels - financially, operationally, and the significant increase of requests for food and mental health assistance.

Africa Inland Mission - AIM for Africa Fundraiser

AIM Canada has assisted numerous worthy AIM projects over many years with funds from annual fall fundraisers. We are very grateful to all that have participated and donated to these projects!
In 2021 we are introducing a new fundraising event called AIM for Africa as AIM Canada’s annual fall fundraiser. AIM for Africa has been birthed out of prayer and discussion with Director Dan, Personnel Chaplain Monte, and other Canadian staff members. Our goal is to select urgent projects in locations where our Canadian AIM missionaries serve. Our desire is to see physical and spiritual needs met as a result of the funds raised.
